A character actors showcase.
What makes this 1969 movie so entertaining is the collection of character actors who are given an opportunity to showcase their talents. Lots of little stories about a group of American tourist who are essentially barnstorming their way through Europe on a tour bus make up the plot. Each one of them has some special experience in one of their many tour stops.

This is one of those movies that can be watched over and over and never gets old. It is doubtful that a film like this could be made now because there just doesn't seem to be the same kind of character actors today who could appear and deliver in small scenes like the performers in this movie do.

Did You Know?


One of the subplots involves Fred and Edna Ferguson who take their 19-year-old daughter Shelly on the tour to get her away from her boyfriend in the US. On the trip she falls for an intriguing student radical called Bo who organizes protests across Europe. Edna is played by Peggy Cass, who was also a regular panelist on various TV shows in from the 1960s-1980s, including the popular To Tell the Truth (1956) in its heyday. Bo is played by Luke Halpin. who became famous in the early/mid-'60s as the star of two movies and the TV series Flipper (1964) playing Sandy Ricks. Luke's rising fame saw him appear as a 'contestant' on "To Tell the Truth" in March 1964 just before he turned 17. Peggy Cass was one of the four panelists who quizzed Luke (and the two other impostors) in an attempt to determine the real Luke Halpin. She was the only one of the four to make a wrong choice.


Charlie Cartwright: Sam Perkins?
Samantha Perkins: Uh, that's Samantha.
Charlie Cartwright: Oh, I'm sorry, they've abbreviated it here. Is that Miss or Mrs.?
Samantha Perkins: Miss.
Charlie Cartwright: Which is as good as a mile, eh?


Right before the opening credits, a TWA aircraft lands and the airport PA system announces the arrival of TWA flight 700 yet one of the party is carrying a Pan Am flight bag.

Crazy Credits

"The End" title card initially looks like just any other title card. However, the camera zooms out and reveals that it is a picture hanging on a wall. The character played by Aubrey Morris (the kleptomaniac) enters and removes it from the wall, trying conspicuously to hide it in his coat. He walks off and the screen fades out.
